I have a patch on icecast-2.2.0 svn version which was written

mountpoint and only that mountpoint. This is based on per mount-point
username password. Using HTTP authentication the client can retrieve

username/password. This will only return the stats for that specific
mount point in XML format. In this case the XSL can be used safely
outside the admin dir referencing the admin/stats.xml using the HTTP
I'm on holiday currently, but I'll post the patch as soon as I get a
chance to do so.
